One of South Africa’s leading model trainers Neetasha Singh will be in Malawi during the Malawi Fashion Week from May 30 to June 3.
According to the Malawi Fashion Week website, Singh will be a guest model from South Africa and is expected to train the models who will grace the ramp.
She is well known as commander in charge and creator of Operation Model Boot Camp and is, therefore, expected to crack the whip when it comes to model training for the event.
“It would be an awesome experience as I may be Indian but I am African inside me,” she says of her participation in the Malawi Fashion Week.
“I guess I will bring a little of my South Africa spirit with me! I adore African inspired designs and art! I cannot wait to be a part of this amazing event as this would be a large platform for Africa to work as a team! Malawi is a gorgeous country, I cannot wait to finally visit!!!
“It would also be mind-blowing to meet and work with different designers from a neighbouring country, Malawi.
“I would love to share my experiences with the beautiful Malawian models, as I have been modelling for the past 12 years, both nationally and internationally. I am currently in India. I breathe sleep and live it!” she said through Facebook.
According to her profile, Singh, a student at University of South Africa, has modelled in over 28 countries and has participated in Lakme Fashion Week, in shoots around the world, and is a model coach in South Africa.
She is inspired by passion, ramp modelling and photo shoots. She has worked with Mr Price, Dax Martin, Soviet, Vikram Phandis, Swapnil Shinde.
Recently, she acted in a South African movie 31 Million Reasons and has previously acted in movies such as Tokolosh and Bombay Duckas as well as being a qualified model and hip hop dancer. She holds Model Camps every three months in South Africa.
Seven models from Botswana, Mozambique, South Africa and Zambia have confirmed their participation in the Malawi Fashion Week.
The Malawi Fashion Week will allow elegant models, fashion designers, brands or clothing shops to display their latest clothing designs and collections on the runway. The show is expected to be a trendsetter for Malawi style, fashion and local material and tell what Malawi clothing culture is being moulded to be.
